Activity Card General Movement 4-6 Wall Tag

WALL TAG   (General Movement)
Suitable for players aged 4-6 years

SETUP

  1. Create an area up to 30m x 30m. Modify the size depending on the number of players
  2. Set up lines of cones (‘walls’) randomly on the ground inside the area
  3. All players start inside the area with 1 being the ’tagger’, who has a bib

HOW TO PLAY

  1. All players move around the area while the ‘tagger’ tries to catch them. The players use the ’walls’ to shield themselves from the ‘tagger’
  2. The ‘tagger’ cannot reach or jump across a ‘wall’ to tag a player
  3. The ‘tagger’ tries to tag other players. When a player is tagged, they take the bib and become ‘tagger’

PROGRESSION

BASIC: - Increase the number of ‘taggers’ - Make the area smaller or remove ‘walls’
INTERMEDIATE: Give all players a ball to dribble
ADVANCED: The ‘tagger’ has no ball but the other players do

OUTCOMES

  • Ability to change direction at speed
  • Dribbling and changing direction with close ball control
  • Awareness of space and other players while dribbling
